Windows Phone 7 SDK and XNA GSE 4 install on Windows 8

Installing a new Windows 8 PC, I ran into troubles with the Visual Studio Express for Windows Phone 7 (including the XNA GSE 4.0).

After some trials and tribulations, I found the cause: I had to install the latest “Game for Windows – LIVE” before.
